You could give these places creepy, scary names:

‘Waterfall of the Final Frontier,

‘Jungle of Danger’,

‘Swamps of Terror’,

‘Viper Pass’,  etc.

Just use your imagination.

d. A cross where the treasure is supposed to be.

When you have finished with your map

you can make it look much older

using teabags.

You can roll it up in a scroll

and tie some ribbon or some string around it.
